Big Discussion: Intersectionality and TTO.
I’m studying for my Writing class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
- Do you have a favorite or least favorite story from That Takes Ovaries? Why is it your favorite (or least favorite)?
- One of the major themes of this course has been intersectionality–the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender, as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage. How effectively does That Takes Ovaries represent differences among women as their identities intersect with race, sexuality, gender identity, class, age, religion, and nation? Explain your answer and give specific examples from the book.
- That Takes Ovaries was published in 2002. Is it still relevant? Why or why not?
